Adults do not like to sit for any length of time without moving around at some point. My students are no different. They need to move and wiggle in order to pay attention. This can cause problems if their need to move is significant and they are in a classroom where they are expected to sit in a traditional school chair all day. These Hokki Stools allow students the flexibility to move without causing major disruptions in the classroom. Everything I do in my classroom is based on research and best practices for kids. Some of the immediate benefits of flexible seating include burning more calories, using up excess energy, improving metabolism, increased motivation and engagement, creating a better oxygen flow to the brain, and improving core strength and overall posture. It's no surprise that physical activity is linked to higher academic performance, better health, and improved behavior. In fact, a paper by Matthew T. Mahar, et al. finds that: Simple in-class activities can boost performance. Studies suggest that children who participate in short bouts of physical activity within the classroom have more on-task behavior, with the best improvement seen in students who are least on-task initially. Plus, let's face it! They are COOL!
